From the Mark Herring for Attorney General campaign:

The Mark Herring for Attorney General campaign responded to Senator Obenshain’s negative attack ads today by releasing their latest television ad titled “Wrong Turn.” The ad highlights the Obenshain/Cuccinelli record of punishing women for making their own, private health care decisions.

The ad focuses on the 2007 “Personhood” bill, co-sponsored by Ken Cuccinelli and Mark Obenshain, that would ban common forms of contraception and outlaw abortion, even in cases of rape and incest.

“Like Ken Cuccinelli, Senator Obenshain has spent his entire career in the state Senate trying to punish women for making their own, private health care decisions,” Mark Herring stated. “Ken Cuccinelli and Mark Obenshain believe politicians in Richmond should dictate to women what they can and cannot do with their bodies, and they have the record to prove it. Virginia women can’t trust Ken Cuccinelli and Mark Obenshain.”

    showing that Obenshain introduced legislation to criminalize women who failed to report miscarriages to the police within 48 hours of the unhappy event!  Some anal aperture named Cosgrove tried this in the VA legislature in 2005 and was brought down single-handedly by Maura Keany who, alas, now lives in Connecticut. Wish she were still here in Virginia.
